Episode #32: Navigating Marriage, Spiritual Transformation, and Witchy Life with Tim Piastrelli

Many of the people I work with come to me feeling “different” or “weird” and afraid of expressing their interests and spirituality to their partner because they’re afraid of being rejected for it. Or maybe they wish that their partner could be more similar in their spiritual beliefs, but they’re having a hard time relating in that way.

So today on the Belonging podcast, I’m sharing a conversation I had with my husband, Tim, about building a life and relationship together as two extremely different people. We talk about what Tim thinks about all my “witchy stuff,” how we communicate, how I’ve slowly introduced Tim to my spiritual/seasonal/ancestral ways, and how Tim suggests approaching your partner (or anyone!) who might initially be resistant to the witchy ways.

“If you think your partner is close-minded, they might just be scared.” -Tim Piastrelli


How do you relate to your partner or loved ones who don’t exactly hold your same beliefs?

My book Root & Ritual is now available wherever books are sold!

My intention with this book is for it to be your guide to reconnecting with the earth, your ancestors, and your communities as you come home to your whole self. Despite our best efforts, our modern world leaves so many of us feeling isolated, unworthy, and alone. We’re unrooted from the land, untethered from our lineages, disconnected from our communities, and separated from our deepest sense of self. Root & Ritual is meant to be a pathway back to connection and wholeness through rituals, recipes, and ancestral wisdom.
